- average audience recording without much low end. moderately intrusive crowd noise.
- d2>d3 transition now seamless.
- d/o at end of IKYR removed using soundforge 5.
- originally tracked on 3 discs, this one easily fits on 2 80 minute discs. Some may find the break in If Shoe Fits > NSB aesthetically unpleasing. - compendium doesn't list this transition as being present, but there is no clear pause in the music between the two songs, just a sharp break, which i've tracked accordingly.

This one almost got did.
I chose this show because 2-21-95 is actually pretty good, so I thought maybe the whole Salt Lake City run would be decent. I was wrong. This show is so bad the whole way through. The show is plodding and sleepy. Jerry's voice is awful, and both he and Bobby are in and out vocally and lyrically. Every song is so messy, especially Estimated, which might be the worst ever.
Attics, however, gave me a brief break from the awful-ness of the rest of the show. It's not a top-10 or anything, but it's decent. Actually the encore Baby Blue is okay, too.
Do yourself a favor and avoid this show.
I agree that this whole "taking back" of these SBD's for download is a bummer, but to wish the people that were a part of making this music so special should "Go To Hell" is a little harsh, and very out of spirit with the whole GD ethos. Look, all these recording are out there. Just b/c you can't get 'em here anymore, doesn't mean that the thousands of copies that were downloaded or in people's hands before this whole archive existed, aren't still available. It is analogous to putting a drop of dye in a pool and then trying to get it back, it's impossible. Once it's out there, it's out there forever. Instead of wishing Weir and Mickey go to hell, why don't you guys spend that energy trying to find folks that already have these shows downloaded and send them some blank CD's? Try making friends with some folks instead of making Bob Weir your enemy. Wouldn't that make more sense? Just a thought.
Subject: More download thoughts
The heads always had lots of boards, as they got patched off to a couple of heads on some nights. But, to mass distribute the soundboards would have violated every contract they had, including every time they played a tune written by somebody else.
The cool thing about yanking the SBDS? I discovered the Oade Brothers fine work from the 80's. I compared my 9/3/85 board with their audience and the Oade Bros win going away.
Regarding Bobby and Phil- Bobby did seem to be confused by the whole thing in that interview, but he knows the GD Store and ITunes have plenty of space for downloads and profits. Phil put his P&Friends DSBDS right up here shortly afterwards. So he obviously doesn't need to sell-em. I guess if it were up to him, he would have left the Dead SBDS up here.

My 2 cents on dowloads. I have no problem with them holding soundboards, however, why wasn't this
the original stance? Then to back peddle and blame this website for jumping the gun is bush. Also, I paid 39.99 to the dead for the Terrpain Station CD where the proceeds were suppose to go to build a place for heads to obtain any concert from their history. Can anyone tell me where that cash went? I'd love to know.

ON.I was soooo wasted that during drums/space I kinda took a nap.I was up for the Miracle and sang every last line. Bobby is the man.
I would have loved to have gone to the other 2 shows but I had to work.The man "TACO BELL" robed me of my 2nd, and 3rd.
